A lot of what gets traded isn't necessary available on download. I think its incredible trading here cause you send someone the show they were looking for (see the other reasons people have to look, not trade)and a couple weeks later you get like 8 cds that someone thinks you'll like (Bela Fleck, Litle Feat, mixes, whatever).I love seeing what other people here consider to be their favorite stuff.Maybe the bottom line is that some of us older folk have less shit going on and can burn, label, package, mail cause we can. Thats all.

nail on the head jody. one final pont - slow computer/fast computer, not everyone is as tech savvy as the next cat. cherry on the sundae, it feels damn good to help those folks out (we've all been there). always better to give than receive.

G&K you should give it a try...

I bowed out of trading by mail a couple years ago, because I had trouble keeping it organized and got anxious about letting people down, but I love the vibe of folks on this board. I'm happy downloading what I can, but it makes me happy to see you guys keeping the padded-envelope industry in business.

i understand that anxious feeling oh so well. a day turns to two and in the blink of an eye, a week has drifted by and you've yet to hit the post. i had a tipi set up at sugarmegs for a couple of years before calling LMA home (email delays were just too frustrating). i've learned from trading sensei's like sir mick and mike lembo that good things DO come to those who wait.
